Two Bryan-College Station physicians began new terms of service in Texas Medical Association (TMA) leadership positions, during the recent TMA Fall Conference held just outside Austin.
Jason R. McKnight, MD, a Bryan family physician in practice for one year, began serving on TMA’s Committee on Rural Health. The committee reviews and comments on laws, regulations, and activities that affect patient care in rural areas.
Mary L. Parish, DO, a College Station family physician in practice for 29 years, began serving on TMA’s Committee on Medical Home and Primary Care. The committee promotes the medical home and integration of primary care, community care, and public health.
TMA member physicians and medical students are appointed or elected to one of TMA’s 25 boards, councils, and committees. They are responsible for studying health care-related issues and making recommendations on important health care policy affecting Texas patients and their physicians.
Both physicians are members of the Brazos-Robertson County Medical Society.
TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing more than 51,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 110 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
